View Full Version : Control Mouse and Keyboard from another computer

Basically, I have two computers. One is my main computer with a large screen in my bedroom, and it has all my videos on it, and the other is my laptop. What I'm wanting to do, is find a program that lets me control the keyboard and mouse on my main computer using my laptop, but I don't want Remote Desktop or Remote Assistance because I want to be able to control videos, or even games if at all possible.

Does anyone know of any programs that can just control the mouse and keyboard remotely?

I want to be able to control videos, or even games if at all possible.

Sounds to me that you want to play games on your main pc through a remote desktop connection from your laptop. I dont know of any such software but I do believe the gaming experience will not be great from your laptop especially if you are playing online games.

Why not just use a wireless keyboard and mouse on the main Computer - that way the laptop is out of the loop all together.

my media Center has a combo Wireless KB & Mouse - the keyboard works fine, but the mouse -- Well lets not talk about that :lol: Bit slow to react.

You cannot play games, but VNC may be what you're after ...
